"The right to vote… is the primary right by which other rights are protected." This quote from founding father Thomas Paine encapsulates why it is so important to vote. Many voters exerize this right during presidential elections, yet ignore the mid-term elections – to the detriment of us all. Our guest, filmmaker and author Dorothy Fadiman, joins us to talk about what she uncovered while making her explosive film STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote – and why it is so crucial that every voter vote, and every vote be counted.
In this conversation, you’ll hear:
how Dorothy made this in-depth exploration of the 2000 & 2004 elections
how the privatization of voting machines has enables bad actors to steal votes
what resources are available to you if your right to vote is being threatened
why – and how – exit polls are adjusted "after the fact" to match reported results
